Survival from Cardiac Arrest

It’s estimated that more than 95 percent of cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital (from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest).

A victim’s chances of survival are reduced by 7 to 10 percent with every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation.  Few attempts at resuscitation succeed after 10 minutes.

Statistics from Cardiac Science (a Mfr. of AEDs).

The graph below is telling, using statistics from Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, that tells why we need more deployed AEDs in communities, fitness centers, churches, businesses, etc.   Does your business/workplace have an AED?   Is it worth a $1,800 investment to save the life of a co-worker, employee, or customer?
